Dr James Colgan (Los Alamos National Laboratory) has been elected Fellow of the American Physical Society this year “for advancing fundamental understanding in the electron-impact ionization, few-photon multiple ionization, and ion-impact ionization of atoms and molecules found in astrophysical and laboratory plasmas.” James did his PhD in CTAMOP on multiphoton processes with Prof. Phil Burke about 10 years ago.
